i've experienced a problem lately, i'm going to explain to you.
firstly, a week ago, i experienced an error, which shows "Windows unable to display security and shutdown options." which is as shown below.
However, at this time, i still am able to boot up to windows, though at a considerably slow speed, i am able to boot up. then i ran malwarebytes, and found only a few adware, so i dismissed the possiblilty
of malware causing the problem. then i search online for an answer, in which, for hours the desktop was ok, so i thought the problem was somehow resolved. but then it strikes again. this time, used ms config to boot to safe mode with networking, and used malwarebytes to scan every hard disk partition. turns out clean.
Then i reboot normally, suddenly it wont boot and went to start up repair. which windows was unable to repair anything. then i started memory test, turns up no problem, and then i ran safe mode again and ran <chkdsk /r> again turns out fine. After that, windows, not even safe mode was able to boot up. to make matters worse, my UEFI wasn't able to detect the windows disk drive sata.
these are my hardware information:
- motherobard: ASUS Z170M-PLUS.
- ram: CORSAIR Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz PC RAM 8GB X2
- Graphic card: EVGA NVDIA GEFORCE GT970
- Processor: INTEL I5 (not I7, my mistake)
- HDD 1: SEAGATE 500GB (WINDOWS 7 PARTITION)
- HDD 2: WD 4TB RED BOOK
- OS: WINDOWS 7 SP1 64BIT
Then i tried to use Hiren's Boot CD 15.2 to try to use Seagate Disk wizard, to see what's going on with my hard disk, it cannot even start. then i tried to boot up then i suspect maybe the MBR is faulty or corrupted,
so i tried to use the isolinux 4.05, to see what i can do, but it wont even load. i forgotten what error it says, i will update it.
This is my first post in this forum, please excuse me if i provide any insufficient data or any disrespectful tone.
i am at my wits end as I've exhausted all my options, please advice, Thank you very much
